Finally a reliable braking solution for large scale aircraft, these wheels use the same system used on high-speed roller coasters for launching the cars along the track, just in reverse. Magnets set into the outer rim of the wheel react with the coil in the center hub. When a current is passed through the coil, the magnets react with the magnetic field generated and slow the wheel down, thus causing the aircraft to brake. As there are no friction parts in the wheels, they cannot wear out so reliability and longevity should never be an issue.
You can even use braking progressively to avoid locking up the wheels when applying the brakes, just set them up on a progressive channel on the TX operated by a variable channel.
You get a pair of braking wheels and an Electro Magnetic Brake Controller. This plug's straight into your receiver for signal and draws power from an external battery pack, you can use anything from 3-10s LiPo.

Not a well finished product all all. Had potential with good rubber wheels and a decent hub, however the shaft and bearings are utter rubbish. Mine came with bent shafts and damaged bearings. Not a free spinning wheel, in it's initial condition. It would be applying a braking force without the electromagnet. Went to the local small parts store and purchased high carbon shafts, decent bearings and a couple of circlips. Should be happy days for here on in. Should have bought a Taiwan Tornado electromagnetic brake instead and avoided the hassle!
